Background

The Celestial Bureaucracy are by their nature isolationists, the Handsome Monkey King however is always more than willing to slap the face of accepted convension. This is how a barbarian capable of tracing her family across Germany, France and then of 1066 England find herself mothering one of his off-spring.

Marc Harsent was always trouble, his mother wasn't even twenty when he was born, and she never spoke about his father, although he knew well enough he'd been the product of a one night stand. He also had various step fathers over the first few years of his life. At first he was just a normal troublesome toddler, he'd grab anything he could reach and either try and eat it or hide it. The older he got though he began to pull pranks, ever more elaborate pranks. Often on anyone who tried to assert authority over him, it wasn't that he hated authority, it wasn't even that he seemed unable to accept authority, it was just that he found it so incredibly funny to show authority up.

By the time he was seven Marc's mother had finally found someone she not only loved, but who loved her enough to put up with her troublesome son. By the time he was nine Marc had agreed quite happily to attend boarding school. Of course he became far worse trouble with both more people telling him what to do, and an audiance willing to watch and keep score of his games.

As he got older however Marc soon began to pick his fellow students as his targets, the bigger stronger and generally meaner students, at first people realised that Marc liked to fight, he'd have been good on the boxing team, if he'd only been able to follow the rules, but if you watched closer then one would have noticed that by the time he'd reached his mid-teens most of Marcs pranks helped someone, sure someone always ended up with egg on their face, and Marc always walked out laughing, but it was hard not to see that someone came out of the prank better off, and usually no one got hurt.

Marc knew his father was from China so, hoping to find more of his roots he went there straight from school, he spent six months travelling the country, getting in and out of trouble, when his dad showed up, he'd been planning on going home, but with the revalations of the war, and his heritage he stayed in China for a further two years, he studied the philosophy in a passing manner, and become a career criminal, it was in part this, and in part a promise to help a friend that led to his travelling to New York, where he's jumped straight back into a life of crime.

Personality

Marc's prone to childish behaviour, he's not above pranks or bad jokes, he's also often deliberately rude, and sometimes disgusting, but what really makes the man is his take on authority. He has at best an indifferent opinon to authority, taking orders from even the most powerful and respected of figures as little more than prudent suggestions. At best he'll follow a persons lead if they ask nicely, at worst (and mst often), he'll belittle insult and basically torment authority figures until they either stop being authority figures or he comes to accept them.

Relationships

Yeah, who do you know? Who is important?
